image for Satellite Debris Kills Bull: Obama Blamed
Killer satellite

Special to INS - The 20-year-old satellite that crashed into Earth last week had a roughly 1-in-3,200 chance of hitting a person, NASA officials claimed. The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, or UARS (pronounced: you-arse), apparently missed the planet's 7 billion people but shrapnel did hit Gunnar Daligson's prize bull, Big Johnson, in Willard, Wisconsin.

A broken-hearted Daligson told CNN's Chris Jansing, "That piece of space junk slammed into the bullpen, and a flying gate hinge castrated Big Johnson quick as a wink. He's been bellowing one octave higher ever since. Poor feller just stares into his hay trough or bends over looking 'tween his forelegs."

White House Liaison David Noble stated that "NASA regrets the castration and will reimburse Mr. Daligson as soon as Congress agrees on Washington's latest debt-reduction plan. President Obama later denied he pressured NASA to re-program the satellite's path to hit Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's home."

Several other pieces of debris landed near the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. Local resident Bobby-Joe Killicat gathered them up and put them on display in an old Winnebago across from the ranch. He said, "My cousin Eldred works at the International UFO Museum in Roswell and started talking in tongues when I told him the chunks fell into my back yard. Armageddon is a-comin'!"

Presidential candidate Rick Perry blamed the Obama administration for the breakup of the satellite: "The President must explain to the American people how this could happen. When I'm elected, my administration will install a shield over America to deflect space junk."

When told of the impracticality of such a shield, Perry responded by saying, "With the Lord's help all things are possible, with the exception of maybe asking Him to rain on Texas-He sure as Hell screwed that one up."
